Lightbulb Quick & easy

I have been buying the packaged sets of cards & envelopes on sale at craft stores like Hobby Lobby or Jo-Anns so that I always have envelopes to match. Any card fronts I have can then be easily added, or new cards made from scratch quickly. I also stamp a small piece of paper with the sentiment inside, if any. I watch for inexpensive zip-style baggies on sale, and keep a stash of those in my craft area. If I remember, I bag cards for this project right after I make them; if not, it is a quick in-front-of-the-tv activity to bag them all before sending to Keri. I add in the 'sentiment inside' paper in the back, by the envelope, facing out so it can be seen by the troops.

I have attached the file I use for the 'sentiment inside' sheets. I print it out and cut it up so I have a stack of them always ready. (Not done in perfect MSWord style, but I would rather spend time crafting than fussing with Word.)

Keri, thank you so very much for all that you do for our troops! Wish I lived close so I could help- you do an amazing job! And I appreciate that it is relatively easy to send you cards- not as much paperwork as other groups, so hopefully people will do their part to help you keep it simple!

I can fill about 2 flat-rate boxes with cards. I'll get these out to you soon! Thanks for all you do!

Hi Keri -- Sounds like a great stamp group project for an afternoon to work on those cards and get them all ship-ready! Maybe you can find a bunch of them in your area to meet up for an afternoon of it?

My son just joined the Army this year so I'm hoping to work on some cards for you too if you are still doing this!

Please Note: This project is no longer going due to time constraints and schedule of missions down range. If we are able to get it up and going again at a later date I will be sure and update this thread then. Thanks to everyone who has made this such a huge success!

'm sorry to hear that this thread is no longer active.

If people still have cards to donate, please check out Soldiers' Angels - May No Soldier Go Unloved as I believe they do some of the similar things by sending blank cards to soldiers to send home.

I am a volunteer and I have 3 adopted soldiers, member of the sewing team, Card Plus team(they send out requests for added support), and have 3 soldiers names sent to me 2X a week that I send cards too as well.

It is a great organization, please check it out
